I have been several times at the place. I used to live nearby. I can easily say that I have had the Worst Pizza of my entire life. It would be hard to top this disastrous experience. I have been brought Pizza with worms inside and yet tasted better than the pizza I ate in this restaurant. Secondly, lunch menus... More

Good Wienerschnitzel but other excellent Austrian dishes as well. A warm coleslaw with cumin salad not to be missed. Kaisersmahn and Marillen Knôdel very well prepared desserts.

We had some friends over so decided to take them to eat Rosti at the Elefant. There were various dietary arrangments which need to be met but everyone had a choice and was very pleased with the food which was served to them be they meat eaters, or not. Delicious!

Returned to Restaurant Elefant as we had promised, this time for some food.The restaurant was hosting an Austrian themed menu but our eyes were drawn to the more traditional Rosti menu. There was a good choice and certainly something for both our tastes. Delicious! A an additional touch was the tour of the restaurant by the chef who checked we... More

We had 40 minutes to kill before an evening appointment so hopped off the bus and popped into the shopping centre for a drink. Stopped at this restaurant which had a bar area and had a couple of beers. Staff were friendly. Atmosphere was nice. Food being served looked appetising. Next time we are passing we will try out the... More
